Bingo Card ~ Fashionable Stamping Challenges ~


Well another two weeks has flown by and it's the time for latest Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this time the theme is a Bingo Card. If you want to know more about this challenge and would like to see lots of lovely inspirational projects from the Stampettes please head over to FSC and join in with us. The winner of the challenge will be able to choose a prize from our lovely sponsor Marina at Cottage crafts.

I chose the diagonal line which is Show some Metal, Distressing and Vintage, for my bingo line. FSC is a stamping challenge so we do need to see some stamping in your project.





I made the background paper myself with distress inks in spiced marmalade, mahogany & brushed corduroy  and picket fence stain. The focal stamp is by La Blanche and is painted with watercolours. Dies used are Tim Holtz weathered clock, and cuttlebug corner. Other materials used were Gilders paste in antique gold, copper & patina, Gold Krylon leafing pen and a vintage butterfly charm. The card is mounted onto kraft card, which I seem to be using an awful lot ATM LOL!

I'm entering this for the following challenges

Papertake ~ Anything goes
Craft your passion ~ Anything goes
The ABC Challenge ~ K is for Kraft
The Stampman ~ Vintage
Craft-room challenge ~ Vintage


Have a lovely Sunday & Happy Crafting XX

Stunning!! What a gorgeous colour combination!! Love your background, it really suits the card and the torn edges on the stamped vocal piece just really add to the vintage feel. Great card!

Deborah said...

The colours really glow on this piece. Wonderful!

Brenda Brown said...

An exquisite work of art Paula. The focal image is charming and your colour palette just brilliant. I love your vintage style and your ability to compose and construct such gorgeous creations.
Thanks for also sharing this at The Stamp Man this week.

Stunning. Love that face but I also love your b/g. Then again, I'm a bit of a b/g fan, he, he. Love it when people play and layer and create their own unique 'papers' instead of using someone else's ideas. Beautiful work x
